    Do you advise putting ash in compost?

  • Dead Planet 1 year ago

    How do you apply wood ash to your garden?
    1)  Do you just sprinkle it on the top surface?
    2)  Do you bury it or till it into the ground?
    3)  Or, …some combination of both?
    4)  How does wood ash compare to Rock Dust as a fertilizer.

    Biochar is wonderful stuff. I have had wonderful results with it. However, I like your explanation here as you demonstrate the difference between char and ash.

    Wood ash is also a great deterrent for slugs, they hate crawling across it.  Simply put a thin layer on the soil around your plants.

    Great short video packed with excellent info!  Always wondered how to use ash and just haven't had a chance to research it yet.  Now I know!  Just watched a video by One Yard Revolution on Biochar with some excellent info on what it is and why it is effective in the garden.  Goes along well with this video!

    +Stephanie Jones he was actually getting it confused with something else. biochar does not have to be activated. it naturally absorbs nutrients, and allows plants to reach them. it also gives a home for microbes, fungi, and bacteria which are great for the garden. it can't be broken down because it is pure carbon and can't decompose any more.

    Awesome tip! Just curious… What does Kyle Coulson mean in his comment below by saying to "activate the charcoal first before adding it to the garden"? What does activating the charcoal mean and how do you do that?
